G614 Blowout

I recently sold my trailer and it was being transported to Florida. The driver had a blowout on a G614 Tire that I had put on in the spring of 2012 (They were not used much). The build date for those tires was December 2011. Shouldn't Goodyear replace this tire for the new owner? Would all he do Is take the tire in to a Goodyear dealer or does he need to go to head-office?? Thanks for comments

What kind of blowout? If it was from a road hazzard, probably not. Maybe not for a catastrophic failure either.

If it was a road hazard or under-inflated he's probably out of luck. If it was a defect then he should call Goodyear customer service and they'll have him take it to a dealer and arrange compensation. Be advised, however that if they do prorate it the price will be prorated on the manufacturing date of the tire, not today's prices. That's what they did with my Marathons and since Keystone put them on when they were a year old and then the trailer didn't sell for a year I got two year old prices for them. Still much better than nothing.

And I'm not sure on any warranty being transferable to a 2nd owner...

Definitely not under inflated..I checked the pressure before it left and all tires were 90PSI...unless it had a slow leak or something..maybe the driver wasn't checking the pressure daily on the trip..

If the failure was caused by a materials and workmanship issue, it should be fully covered by Goodyear, even though he is the second owner of the tires. If the failure was caused by a road hazard, or slow loss of air pressure due to a foreign object, it will not be covered.

The new owner should take the tire to a Goodyear dealer for inspection to determine the cause of the failure.

What kind of transporter was being used? I have seen comercial transporters towing new trailers across country at 70 plus mph.

I believe the Goodyear G614 can handle 70 mph, even though most of us don't tow at that speed.

Thanks Ton that's fast enough. Seriously I thought all LT tires were rated at a little over a 100.
